I discovered apache2 logs it for each of my virtual domains being attacked by spambots. Looking into the directory of one my virtual domains

/home/mysite/logs

and doing a tail -f error_log

I saw an entry in the logs like:

[Mon Dec 15 22:23:05 2008] [crit] [client 208.64.72.41] mod_spamhaus: address 41.72.64.208.sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org is blacklisted. Deny connection to www.mysite.com

Very cool! It has help reduce the abuse directed to all of my hosted web sites

Thanks! Falko for putting up this how-to.
